    So PJ, with your new position, maybe you could ask around and answer my question of exactly who and why they though an echoey moan was a good thing for a racing games main title screen, instead of say... a 1970's porno.

    This week Mr. The block travels to Poland for Arcade Popcorn. He talks **** about Poland and it's car culture, and then goes for the "smoke and syle" contest because he's too **** to do anything better. Speaking of, will GRID have GRID?

    One too many days on the old Fast and Furious arcade machines methinks. Don't you know if you brute slam the shifter you gain .0003 seconds?

    Do you drive an actual car? Outside of moving around around occupied parking lots, how much do you turn the wheel? I mean, even when I race down twisty mountain roads in my actual shitbox I don't go more than 180 in either direction. Guy above me is right, most of it's in the +/-90 range. The only time in game I really go wider than that is drifting in Assetto Corsa, and you just do that by feel more than anything. You shouldn't have to slam lock to lock.

    I find it pretty quick, and it's not clunky at all, but whatever. Different opinions I suppose. Everyone who's tried my Fanatec shifter has really liked it. Also it seems more representative of what's actually used instead of a teeny little thing.

    Wait, you don't like the Fanatec shifter and told Fanatec, or CM? I think the Fanatec shifter is the best out of the "cheaper" options. It's a seamless transition from h-pattern to sequential. And it's not muscle breaking if you loosen it up, which is also very easy. I have mine feeling about the same as my actual car. The only thing I don't like is the SQ has a lot more tension than the h-pattern, which again you could adjust on the fly, but when all you're really doing is pushing forwards and pulling back it's not a big deal. The Heusinkveld is more expensive and does less being only a SQ, but it is smaller and probably a lot lighter. Reading their webpage it seems to boast about using a ball spring detent for "authentic" feel complete with a useless little graph. That's not particularly impressive. I'm basically just very unsure why exactly it costs so much. Why does everyone think that with 900 you use the full lock to lock all the time? Minus hairpins if you go for a sick drift you never really go much more than 180 degrees in either direction, and that's if you're taking a hairpin normally. Are you guys on low rotation just slamming the hell out of lock to lock all the time? Games feel way more natural and comparable when you use a rotation that matches actuality.

    The solution is simple. Buy a shifter. Flappy paddles suck anyways. He's got a full rig. Going to suck playing anything else with an F1 wheel though. Especially if he ever wants to try drifting.

    Just out of sheer curiosity, is Dirt Rally being delisted from sale? Every previous CM game went free just before being pulled from stores, and DR has now gone free on Humble and Steam.

    Huge difference = small number What is this? Math?

    I already had it on PC. I voted to send it to tbstetst and a couple people followed suit, so they sent him one too. So HA! I AM INDEED BETTER THAN YOU! Oh man, now I feel like everyone's just going to downvote all my posts now. I came in right at the tail end of Lee so never really interfaced with him, and I kept off the gossip thread for the first month or two. Feel like I've missed out, but I did find out I've been on this thread since at least something like page 250. Ehh, pretend it's like real life and your co-driver just missed that call. A sock full of batteries will be waiting for him after the race.

    Probably. Happens in real life too. Also, when I do look at whoever downvotes me, 90% of the time it's someone with only a few posts. Haha, there's a podcast called "Please Stop Talking" where the guys just get drunk and tell stories. One of them is French-Canadian and every story just ends up being how terrible he or the other French Canadians are as human beings. Edit* Holy ****, I've been here for a long time. I forgot that back in 2016 I was the first to vote for getting @tbtstt a free PS4 copy of Dirt Rally, since he was drooling all over us PC guys during the EA. You're still welcome Steve. They sent out an extra free copy just for you. And wow, Chu-chu was around too. Guess he's just not very active.

    I don't think anything really carried over from the old forums, especially considering there's new "flags" now. I have no idea how member reputation works, or why mine is so low, but whatever. Haha, I have 3,500 posts, chu-chu has 500, pretty sure he talks a lot of ****, and has the same member rep as me. I'll take that with pride. Biggest, most disliked member.

    And I prove my point by chukonoku disliking my post. Nice. Reminds me when I worked at a restaurant and there was like 5 Chris's and 2 of them had the same last name. "You know where Chris is?" "Which one?" "The Waiter." "...which one?"

    Pretty sure I'm still the one with the most downvotes per posts, so I got that going for me. In fact, at least 4 people didn't like the fact that I don't love the new BMW. And now that I just looked at it, you can no longer go through and see what posts have been flagged by others like you could on the old forum. You can see all your recent notifications, but that won't even take you to the comment. Cool. I like literally nothing about the new forum, but at least they fixed the loading times.

    Well you can always do the custom championships n stuff. It's not like The Crew, which is always online requirements for literally anything, so whenever Ubi decides to shut down the servers, unless they remove that requirement, that game is dead and gone forever.

    Yeah, isn't it great when single player content is behind server side issues?

    Real nice. I'm questioning if I've posted anything of a similar length. I mean, not including a bunch of quotes, or Porkhammers slightly amusing Bruce Willis picture. Not my fault he can't take a joke. Besides, that co-driver deserved it. Also, I don't think I've 100% anything, not in terms of "achievements" because they don't do anything in-game.

    I'm a tester. Mine was 9gb. I complained about it.

    Yeah, I bet it doesn't even have any other ridiculous BS disciplines. Just all rally.

    Oh look, Mr. The Block sabotages his own race, just so he could ruin a competitors position and ensure he doesn't end in last, which he inevitably would've otherwise.

    In other news, Mr. The Block this week nearly ran over his camera crew on vacation. I'd link the video, but most of it is just wakeboarding. Just imagine him getting bored and the incurable urge to kill someone overtakes him.

    Throttle control is a universal problem in this game that I've talked about in our secret place. Apparently it confuses the **** out of people when I say the first 40% of throttle input is completely disregarded, and then after that it acts like an on/off switch. I have... 10 racing games currently installed on my PC, including Assetto Corsa, BeamNG, Dirt 2, Flatout 2, Grid 2, Grid Autosport, Project Cars 2, and The Crew. I have at least 5 other racing games currently not installed, including Dirt Rally 1, Dirt3, Dirt 4, GTR2/Race07 and all of it's DLC, Project Cars 1, F1... 2015 I think, and DR2 is the only one with throttle that acts like a binary switch at the 50% input. That makes it not very good in my opinion. The BMW around Dirtfish was just like "Grip? What's that?" and spun in circles. I can drift fairly reliably in most other games, but I have no throttle control in this. I didn't drive it on tracks, just scooted around Dirtfish, but it refused to grip. The complete lack of throttle control doesn't help. NO! This car is great, you shut up! Tons of grip!

    ehh. Never really been a big fan of online in racing games, funny enough. Never been competitive in terms of attitude. I'd much rather co-op things.

    Do the community events put you on tracks you don't own? Does it let you MP on tracks you don't own? Does this game even have MP rally? Entirely unrelated, but I just realized your rig consists of over $1000 worth of equipment, with a $50 wheel. Which I find interesting.
